JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2013
On tap at Pizzeria Toro, Durham. Nice to see some Green Man stuff every now and again, and a couple pints of this went down well. Nice lustrous orange pour, with a silky head. Soft English hops and substantial malts in the nose, definitely leaning strongly in the direction of leaf tea. Nice and smooth in the mouthfeel, not overly bitter on the palate. Not particularly full-flavored and aggressive in the way that’s standard for IPAs these days, so it’s certainly a relatively toned down example of the style (despite the commerical description) and that’s no bad thing.

Poured from a bottle. Coppery orange with fluffy offwhite head. Light hop aroma; mostly bready malts and earth. Carries through to the taste. Bitter finish. Medium body.

Leafs93 (1897) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma is earthy, caramel, citrus and resin. Taste is mild bitters with a touch of sweetness, very well rounded as it does not stray to far in either direction. Medium bodied.

mike67 (939) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of piney hops and bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Earthy hops dominate the palate, while caramel malt and ripe fruit provide support. Finish is long, dry, and very bitter. Excellent brew.

Thanks Henry Burnt orange. Almost no head. There’s some herbal aromas, chestnut and almonds. Pine cone and sweet tangerine. Very light taste. The finish is rough. Definitely an older bottle. Crisp, melon, pepper, floral.

Foxbush (1504) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Draft at Jack of the Woods This ale poured a clear dark amber with an off-white head with lacing. You detect a citrus aroma with some caramel malts. The medium body IPA had average carbonation. Quiet bitterness grows into the swallow for a clean, gentle finish. There was a lingering bitterness that stayed until the last swallow.

Tmoney99 (12070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
